"A time for Cultivating" How you respond to the seed is in fact a life and death matter. Choose life in Christ! Have you ever consciously responded to the drawing power of the Spirit of God tugging at your heart, inviting you- up throught the dirt of the earth-into the sunshine of His love? Once you have decided that what God has planned for you is better than anything you could hope for yourself- 1) Carefully tend that new life- by getting into a local church, bible study. 2) Consistently nourish the Christ- life within: Read His Word, and allow it to speak to you! Pray! Learn to pray by praying! "And when the green shoot comes up out of the seed, it is very different from the seed you first planted. For all you put into the ground is a dry little seed of wheat, or whatever it is you are planting, then God gives it a beautiful new body- just the kind he wants it to have: a different kind of plant grows from each kind of seed" I Cor. 15:37-38 A time for Cultivating: If you are born into the family of God, you will begin to grow---In faith and understanding, in love for Him and others, in influence for Jesus, in production of fruit. Here is some verses to study on you own- on some ways of cultivating this Christ-life within- Psalm 119:11, 33 Psalm 1:2, Ephesians 5:20 , Philippians 4:4, 6,8 as you do look up these verses look for key words(for example: seed, planting, harvest, etc) So I hope you enjoy this nugget from God's Word. I will end with this: May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love Eph. 3:17
